A narrow alleyway on a busy road in central London is set to be transformed into a multi-million pound luxury home.
Innovative architects came up with a plan to squeeze a 1,500sq/ft property into a spot which is just 3.1 metres wide.
Dubbed 'The Skinny House', it will have a courtyard at ground level and a fourth floor terrace along with three bedrooms and two bathrooms.
There will be an open plan kitchen/diner on the lower ground floor with a roof light onto the terrace.
The alleyway was previously used as a link path to the now-closed Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital near Regent's Park in Fitzrovia.
But it is not a traditional residential location - with the proposed house set to be sandwiched between two large commercial buildings at a very busy part of Euston Road next to Great Portland Street tube station.
Plans were this week approved by Westminster Council - and the developer's "out-of-the-box" thinking has been praised by property professionals.
